The 24-year-old offspinner claimed 4-127 off 26 overs and scored 13 and eight on debut in the second Test in Hyderabad but was dumped for the third Test in Mohali, where Australia lost by six wickets to go three-nil down in the four-match series.
Spin is expected to play a major role in the Delhi Test.
India's slow-bowling attack of Ravi Ashwin, Pragyan Ojha and allrounder Ravindra Jadeja took 14 wickets between them in the third Test and all can be expected to dominate in Delhi, while Australia's spinners Nathan Lyon (1-124 and 1-27) and Xavier Doherty (0-87 and 1-24) were largely ineffective in Mohali.
Seam-bowling all-rounder Moises Henriques, who's also in his debut series, scored two runs and claimed one wicket in Mohali and the New South Welshman could face pressure from Victorian Maxwell.
The return of in-form quick James Pattinson from a one-match ban over the homeworkgate affair could be a straight swap for injured left-armer Mitchell Starc (ankle surgery).
Australia's pace attack of Peter Siddle and Pattinson plus two spinners and an allrounder would have a balanced look on a turning pitch, giving the hosts' three slow-bowling options.
India might consider dropping Ishant Sharma or Bhuvneshwar Kumar to include a fourth spinner -- the feisty Harbhajan Singh -- for Friday's dead-rubber clash.
The Times of India newspaper on Wednesday declared a slow-turner was on the cards for the fourth Test.
"The black soil that the curators often use there doesn't help the ball to bounce much and the surface cracks quickly," the newspaper said.
Inconsistent bounce will be a factor late in the match.
Accurate spinners who bowl at a decent clip, such as India's Anil Kumble (58 wickets at 16.79 in seven Tests) have good records at Delhi's Ferozeshah Kotla venue.
"Australia would be well advised to pick Glenn Maxwell whose fastish off-spin could prove very handy," the newspaper concluded.
Others would argue flying over uncapped NSW spinner Steve O'Keefe (24 wickets at 22.20 in nine Sheffield Shield matches this summer) is the best option but that's unlikely to happen.
